Half Way to Ten

Friday, Jordan and I celebrated our 5 Wedding Anniversary- Yes, Friday the 13th was our anniversary.  Jordan was at the firestation, so we celebrated last night with KRLD's Restaurant Week Preview Weekend.  I LOVE Restaurant Week, and since my bestest 'foodie' friend, Deeku isn't here, Jordan has graciously agreed to come along on and pretend to be just as excited as I am (or Deeks would be..) about the neat places we get to go to that normally wouldn't be considered.  We started our evening at Mi Piaci in Dallas (Addison) 

The RW menu allows you to choose from a pre-selected menu, 5-6 starters, optional 'special course' ($5/person extra), the main entree and dessert.  All for $35/person.  Such a deal for incredible food.  Jordan started with the Ceasar and then Veal Scallopini.. and ended with the flourles chocolate cake with hazelnut gellato. 

After I finished my classic house salad, my next course was the delicious Fonduta di Tortelloni con Granchio...MMMMMMmmmm.  This translates to Fontina filled Cheese Tortellini with King Crab, mushrooms, roma tomatoes, asparagus, and white wine truffle butter sauce.  W.O.W.  I didn't want it to end.  But, then on came the dessert- and pistachio crusted lemon tart.  Oh my gracious.
 We were so busy enjoying our dinner, and I was too consumed with photographing my food (haha!) we forgot about ourselves!  So, in the car, after dinner we took the photo-op. 

I think I fell in love with him for his FAKE smile.  I haven't seen one of those in awhile, but I wasn't able to tickle him, or insult him enough before he snapped the picture.
We went to see Inception after dinner..we haven't been to the movies in forever, and that is quite unusual for us.  We LOVE the movies, and used to go every single weekend- making priority listings of new movies : Must Sees, See if other movie is sold-out, and Renters. When Jordan was in paramedic school, and then I was in internship, we didn't have a whole lot of time to go to the movies, and pretty soon, we only had one heck of a long list of Renters.   Inception was on the top of my list..and I didn't want to wait to see it as a Renter.  Well, to be truthful, anything with Leo in it is on the tip TOP of my list.  I love him- not only for his knee trembling good looks, but for his acting, I think he is spectatcular at what he does.  If you haven't seen this movie yet, I strongly suggest you GO.  I don't think I have ever seen another movie that let left me with my jaw dropped for it's entirety.

I will leave you with one of my favorite pictures from our big day- driving off on the back end of IFD's antique fire engine.  A total secret from everyone.. including the 100+ Irving Firemen in attendance.  :)  What a perfect gettaway on the most perfect night of my life.

Our Restaurant Week special dinner wont end here...Stephan Pyle's is in my near future.  Note, it has been three years coming trying to get into this place for RW.  Can't wait!
